at Digging Dog
The great, broad planes of this magnificent
Chinese native bring an unmatched calm to shady
garden spots. Recessed in the center where thick,
hairy stalks are attached, the bold foliage emerges in
un-ique bright green shades, and later matures to
light green. Nearly 2 ft. across, each slightly lobed,
umbrellalike leaf is gracefully scalloped. Strong,
dark, flowering stems soar aloft to 5 ft., hosting
heavy, drooping plumes of star-shaped, creamy white
flowers. Once considered a member of the genus
Rodgersia, this monumental Astilboides thrives in moist, humus-rich soil.
Blooms June–early August.
Size: 5' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
Astilboides tabularis (P-1089)
